The number of diseases peculiar to

honesty of purpose, or hesitate to put
our claims to test.
There is only one way to overcome
catarrh. That way is through the
blood. Ton may use all the snuffs,
douches or like remedies for years
without getting more than temporary
relief at best. Catarrh in general Is a
diseased condition of tho system that
shows locally most frequently In dis
charges from mucous membranes.
Local treatment should be assisted by
Internal treatment for the general dis
eased condition if a complete cure Is to
be reached. That Internal treatment
should be scientifically devised and
